The lawsuit will hinge on whether the Bucs and NFl misled the players by minimizing the risks. They have to show that the NFL was negligent. That is a tall order at this point considering much of the information about this is very recent. Plus they have to show that the NFl play caused the damage rather than just contributed with the majority caused by other factors.

These bullsh!t lawsuits will be dismissed. Soon, the NFL will make all the players sign waivers saying, "Yes I realize there is potential danger."
Otherwise they can turn down the millions of dollars and go teach PE with their degrees they got for free.

I was thinking of posting the same thing before I saw this.

It is a dangerous sport, that is why they get paid a handsome amount of money, even the 3rd stringers and practice squads.

What about HS and College. All going to get by because they sign waivers? You have no idea how many people from around the country will join lawsuits agains the "government" by suing schools at some point.

Like I said before, some schools already discussing the stoppage of football programs due to injury. If High Schools and Colleges are impacted, you know the NFL will suffer also.

Too popular, too much money involved. Football will not go down.

If they still let people wrestle in the WWe then the NFL is safe. A wrestler or past wrestler dies every week....
